Jeep TJ 8.8 swap

I'm currently doin a 8.8 swap into my 97 jeep TJ. I'm installing the 8.8 and a 4.5 inch short arm lift kit. My question is with the new rear axle and lift kit will I still need to get a CV driveshaft and a SYE kit? I set the pinion angle at 17 degrees. Any advice or tips from anyone who has already done this.

I got the conversion U-joint so that wouldn't be a problem. Do you know what degree the factory set the Dana 35 and ford 8.8? I tries to put it in last night and it seemed like the pinion angle was way to steep.

I think I set mine at 17 with a flat tummy tuck and 3" lift. So you might be a little high. Depends on the jeep. You just want it pointed at the tcase output. Look up cv shaft geometry. And it won't be right until you put the SYE and correct shaft in.
